Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after sitting through a 3-hour in game infomercial for the On Deck Suite that you will likely never be able to afford buying tickets to for even one game.  Then, when that was finally done, there was still another hour left.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking and screaming at the television trying to get them to get back to the game.

The Padres (15-18) pulled out an extra-inning win over the Kansas City Royals (14-17) in the bottom of the 12th with a 2-run walk-off single by Will Venable.  Jedd Gyorko tied up the game at 4-4 in the bottom of the 9th with his third home run.  Yasmani Grandal got the Friars on the board in the sixth with a 3-run home run, also his third of the season, to tie the game up at 3.

Padres’ starter Eric Stults was hit hard early by singles, lasting just 4 2/3 innings while giving up 3 runs (all earned) on 11 hits and no walks with only 2 strikeouts.  Royals’ starter Yordano Ventura was impressive, pitching 6 innings with 3 runs (all earned) on 5 hits, no walks, and 11 strikeouts.

By the time the 12th inning started, Bud Black had used all of his position players after Rene Rivera came in to pinch hit for Joaquin Benoit in the bottom of the 11th.

Tonight, the Padres will send out Robbie Erlin (1-4) against Jeremy Guthrie (2-2) at 7:10 pm PDT.  No word yet on what the Padres will try the entire game to sell us at the time of publishing.
